Making friends...

on Aug 03, 2014 @ 12:12 am

My husband and I have come to find that making friends after being married AND having a baby is rough. You have to find people you click with and people that like your kid. Then you have to be okay with each other's parenting ways... Plus schedules never seem to add up or one had a babysitter when the other doesn't. It's killer.

Not to mention trying to hang out with married couples who don't have kids yet or people who at stogie 0 single. Those singles can get you in trouble. Lol.

Anyone else have this problem?

When I was married I went through that very thing. We both had careers and more than one baby in diapers. We began clinging to coworkers and neighbors since its truly hard to meet like minds out and about. I would recommend

I`ve heard about and have also heard positive things about it. I`m not married anymore.. and never had kids, but I`ve heard from others that this has hppened to them too. Kinda sad.

I think as life changes and grows we all have friend issues. It can be hard but somethings I think we are so worried about about friendships not being the same that it is easy to let it go.
Friendships grow and change, just like your marriage changes what you want out of life (baby, home, etc) . Likely, you can't party if you have a young baby, but your best friend might not have child yet.. so you will be at different places.

Friendships will evolve... just keep communicating and eventually you will either maintain a great friendship or move on and find new ones. Don't seek them out... they will find you when the fit is right.

Life changes with the blink of an eye. Although I'm not married, i guess it happens often to married couples, but is ok because it takes time to make new friends. As they say Friends come and go :(. Try meeting new people online

I myself moved around a lot so my life changed in many ways and I'm used to changes. That being said I now enjoy the company with women who have kids. We usually meet up and plan to go out. It's harder yes with the everyones differnet schedules but we try to make it work at least once a month. I still hang around with those are single or have no kids but I notice they are usually younger then I am lol...

Still having A Hard Time too. on Aug 30, 2014 @ 03:00 pm

I'm married with a 7 year old son. My son is Autistic which makes it even harder to make friends. Some people don't understand what my son goes through or his behavior which has left me defensive and overprotective of him.

I learnt to be less judgmental once i became a parent. Everyone is trying to do the best they can. My set of friends is still the same true friends grow and evolve with you.
